Lunging Hippo by deskridge Lunging Hippo by deskridge
Like that old guy who lives down the street and constantly yells at kids to get off his yard" " this hippo can't stand to have birds floating on the surface of his lake. He lunges up at a pair of sea gulls from beneath the surface and chases them off.

This image was a bit of an experiment for me as I wanted to display viewpoints both above and below the surface of the water" " kind of like a Wyland (rather famous marine life artist) image.


Note: this scene uses purchased content.

Tools used: Poser, Vue, GIMP

Thanks for looking!
Daniel

I really like it except for one thing.  A hippo should have two very large bottom teeth.  That small curved one on the outside is one of them, but it should be more like the length of a small sword blade.

I agree with DrkSnpr14. Wonderful colors. Great idea with the split level view too. Very well executed.
